Best of Classics for Intermediate Piano published by Santorella Publications is a collection of intermediate to advanced solos that have become known as recital standards for accomplished pianists. These works were not only chosen for their variety of style and form, but also for their suitability as recital performance pieces.

This unique Santorella Publication spans over two centuries and represents the masterworks of thirteen great composers; Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, Brahms, Tchaikowsky, Grieg, MacDowell & Debussy. Each of the selected solos truly embody the musical periods in which they were written.

Preludes and fugues from the Baroque era, sonatas and variations from the Classical era, short pieces from the Romantic era and several transitional pieces from the Impressionistic period fill this comprehensive collection. The pieces cover every technical challenge that would ever be encountered in all keyboard literature.

Each composition is written specifically for keyboard and is presented in its original form, without simplification or alteration. Mastering these pieces is an arduous but necessary step in achieving keyboard excellence. They are the foundation of any major concert artist’s repertoire.
